One counselor in the audience immediately raised her hand to say that one of her high school students was in the process of writing just such an essay — about learning Flamenco in Spain — that promised to be unique and memorable. The boy’s theme (and yes, it was a boy)? “When am I ever going to do that again?”
The justification for going back to college was to be more employable
"Better late than never" is a term that many people tend to use quite loosely. It may apply to many situations and it is sometimes very applicable, but in case of getting a college education, I think it should be changed to “better early than later”. Starting a college education in your 20s is a completely different ball game than choosing to go to college when you are 40. This is mostly because you are at a completely different stage in your life at both ages and you tend to have a lot more responsibilities at the older age. You are not usually responsible for anyone else except yourself in your 20s. It was a very easy decision for me to come to Monroe Community College, as I had not one to answer beside myself. Currently, I have do not have the responsibilities that someone 20 years older would have to face. Whatever decisions I make have no real consequences on any one but me. I am the only one who has to face the consequences of any bad decisions that I might make and I am the only one who would enjoy the fruits of any good decisions that I make.
Thinking about going back to school
Also, beware the over-edited-overworked-by-five-critics essay result where the fresh original voice of the 17-18 year old applicant has been lost. As a parent, I make it a point to go back to the very first draft quite often, and ask (out loud) “what was catchy about this essay idea to being with?” and “is it still there in this current draft?”. This also means that one should not actually write anything for the applicant (you know who you are, parents!) — not only is it unethical, it also puts the idea in your voice, not theirs. Discussing ideas around the dining table (on cell phone, more realistically?), is fair and good I think, much as they would do with a teacher in school.
Grants for Students Going Back 2 School
Nontraditional women students are women who are entering college or trade schools for the first time or are returning students after many years of absence. Many have taken time off from pursuing their education to raise a family. In the meantime they may have worked jobs that needed no special training. Now that many unskilled jobs have been permanently discontinued these women find themselves without a job and without skills.

Dear Ms Ngo,
I just want to let you know that I will not be able to attend class anymore because I’m going to Viet Nam tomorrow. I will miss our class and you. I hope that I will have a chance to come back to your class or see you again in school. Thank you for everything you have taught, and given time for me and our class.
